In 1872 Victoria C. Woodhull was the first woman to run for president with Frederick Douglass for as vice president !
Wow , Why did I just hear about this ? I would surely remembered if they would have told that in our so called History books of the 60's and 70's ?
What kind of world could we be now if that had happened then?
This woman was so awesome ,gutsy , so smart she scared the folks of her time . She went to jail and was there on election day for speaking her mind !
Where is that kind of candidate now ?
I have to admit trying to come up with 100 reasons to blog for peace , can be interesting.
I am learning about people that strive for Peace and equality for the world . I also learn about the people that have fought to make this world more peaceful !
You can go to this link and find out a lot about this amazing event in history we missed out on because American Monopoly had already started by then too or search her name ! guaranteed good read.
If you spliced the genes of Hillary Clinton, Madonna, Heidi Fleiss and Margaret Thatcher, you might have someone like Victoria Woodhull.
